NFL is being very careful with coronavirus by closing all team facilities

Is the NFL making the right moves by closing their facilities?

In a memo sent to teams Tuesday night, commissioner Roger Goodell said the new rules put in place is to “ensure that all clubs operate on a level playing field, and that the NFL continues to conduct itself in a responsible way at this time.”

This will all take place on Wednesday at 6 p.m. local time, according to the memo. All club facilities are to remain closed to all personnel.

The only way the facility could open is if:

• Employees such as athletic trainers or physicians who are providing ongoing medical treatment to players

• Employees such as the director of facilities, security personnel or independent contractors necessary to maintain the physical security of the facility and its contents

• Employees such as technology personnel necessary to maintain the security and operational capabilities of the club’s IT network to enable remote work by club football and business staff

The NFL is taking precautions, and it is a good move at this time for the players.
